Not very for a mechanic. If you want to do it yourself get a shop manual. Make sure the negative battery terminal is completely disconnected. It just involves removing the air cleaner, distributor cap, and distributor hold down bolt (pretty sure is a 9/16. Also, are you sure you want to change the distributor?

If you are not getting spark, the distributor is common to fail. It is hard to tell from the question if you changed it or just the cap and rotor. Also, do you have fuel pressure. That could be a fuel pump. If you have neither fuel or fire, that could be aa computer or wiring issue.

You are getting a low battery power and sometimes no battery power on your 97 Grand Cherokee you just had the battery changed and alternator tested What could cause this?

Two things come to mind: 1 - your new battery could be bad; 2 - you have a wiring problem. You may have a short somewhere that is pulling down the battery. Also, check the battery post connectors where they are fitted onto the wire. Something loose there can cause you grief, too.

Double check the ground. Make sure that the negative terminal on the battery is clean and tight and that the ground onto the engine is not corroded. Now make sure that the coil is getting proper power. Is power coming out of the coil and into the distributor. Remove the distributor cap and rotor and look for any signs of arcing (burned spots) under the rotor. Is the electronic ignition burned out? Use a multi-meter to check the circuits here. Does electricity pass through?
